Edinburgh College of Art graduate Alberta Whittle has provided 2014Frames with two separate selections, the first of these being a focus on photography from the Caribbean. Colour and texture clearly come into play here as the photographers provide us with an insight into what Alberta refers to as “A hybridised culture, where globalisation has ensured cross fertilisation across territories..” These vivid, dynamic images have an ability to grab attention immediately, encouraging us to look deeper into the stories contained within.
I’m still processing this amazing experience. It was extra special that it all happened in a place where I spent a big chunk of my childhood. I’m grateful to have reconnected with Nassau and the sea of inspiring people involved in Transforming Spaces
